The Fig restaurant was wonderful! The staff received us with smiles & joy. The food was well served & the wine was good. The drive around the park was well rewarded with views of Bountboke, Eland & a few other animals.

We stayed at an old Manor House with generators for electricity. Beautiful and calm. An interesting drive to get there in a small car (if you have a 4x4 or larger vehicle the journey there would be more pleasant due to all the farm roads)....More

we stayed in good family accommodation, and dined/breakfasted at the restaurant. It was incredible to be greeted by mountain zebra, bontebook and ostriches on arrival, though less keen on the baboons. We had great bird watching, lovely walks and the dune path was stunning. It...More

Views, hikes, sunsets, birds, eland, peace and quiet - superb. There is a lot to do ranging from long hikes to boat trips on the vlei and walking around the rock pools. Stargazing at night is fantastic and the sunrises and sunsets superb.

There were plenty animals to look at and many, many birds. The roads were confusing and the map was not that clear. Still extremely enjoyable.
